I am trying to read two IDE PATA hdds with my reader. And it won't turn them on. The device gets recognized, however the Drive That I attach it too does not. There is no manual here, and I don't know where I am going wrong, this device did read a Laptop 2.5 HDD, but not any 3.5" PATAS.. Do You think The reader itself is bad? Also when I hook external Power Via Red usb Connector or the 12v plug it still does not start the IDE PATA Drive to even spin? the Jumper settings I reconfigured but I don't think they would have any effect any way.. Any Suggestions, Much Appreciatede..
